Two divisional rivals will square off on Monday Night Football when the Raiders visit the Chargers.
Both teams are coming off victories in week 3.
In most books I have checked, the Chargers are 3.5 point favorites and I have not seen that change much. The total has hit 53 in some spots, but it is mostly listed at 52.5.
Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders just keep playing good football. Yes, their games have been close, but they are figuring out ways to win games.
They improved to 3-0 on the year with a 31-28 overtime win against the Dolphins. This was a game where the raiders were down 14-0, but they came back and salvaged the victory.
Derek Carr continued to look impressive on Sunday. The Vegas QB was 26/43 for 386 yards, 2 touchdown passes, and 1 pick.
With running back Josh Jacobs out, lots of folks wondered how the running game would do. Peyton Barber certainly answered that question. He rushed it 23 times for 111 yards and 1 touchdown. Also, Bryan Edwards had 3 receptions for 89 yards.
The defense, which is a big question mark for this team, did struggle to stop that Miami offense. I am not sure how they will slow down Justin Herbert when they struggled against Jacoby Brissett. Similar to the Dolphins, the Raiders struggled to neutralize the running game. Myles Gaskin averaged 5 yards per carry on Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers
After a tough loss in week 2 to the Cowboys, the Chargers did a very good job of responding in week 3.
Los Angeles went into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday and beat the Chiefs by a score of 30-24. This was definitely a statement victory. The final score was close, but the Chargers had control of the game from the beginning.
Justin Herbert was once again very impressive. He threw for 281 yards and 4 touchdown passes. The Chiefs had no answers for him and the powerful LA offense.
Austin Ekeler was effective on Sunday. He did not get a heavy workload, but he still averaged 5 yards per carry.
Holding the Chiefs to 24 points is very impressive, considering how potent they are. This unit did a very good job of forcing turnovers. They picked off Mahomes twice and also forced 2 fumbles. They will look to build on that when going against the Raiders.

4* Free Week 4 NFL Betting Prediction: Los Angeles SU
This has the chance to be a very good game between 2 tough teams in the AFC West. I am going to stay away from the spread here because of the hook. I feel more confident picking the Chargers to win straight up. To me, they are the better team and they have the better quarterback. I also like the fact that they are playing at home. I feel that both defenses will have trouble stopping the opposing offense. I look for the Chargers to do a little bit more than the Raiders and get a home win in week 4. Give me Los Angeles here.
